    A Carrie Stevens' pattern from 1942 which has long been one of my "favorite" favorites.
    The hook is size #1, 8XL. I really enjoy tying these streamer patterns.
    Sometimes, it was tied with a silver tinsel body and on a longer, 10XL hook.

    PS I wanted to have this up by Veterans' day but it didn't happen.

    Nice fly indeed.
    Is the head black with three colored bands?

    Yes, Eunan. I put up a photo. That is the way Mrs. Stevens finished the head.

    Good grief. Just the head is nicer than anything I've ever tied. That's amazing.
